Remember when I told you I promised to keep this blog real life? Typically I meal plan on Sundays, but that didn't happen this week, so I bring you to (spontaneously) Meal Plan Monday! Sometimes you just have to break routine and make things work. It's a short week this week, plus spring break is next week, so I'm trying to keep things simple while still sticking to my budget. It was actually pretty simple to come up with this week, and I didn't overthink it. Maybe I'll try more Meal Plan Mondays to keep things fun and easy.
Here's my plan for the week. I'm focusing on weekdays just to get us to our fabulous Friday off (eating out day!) and then I'll think about Saturday's meal. Maybe I'll finally try that sweet potato pizza crust I pinned and never made.
I love my refrigerator magnet menu from alaBoard to help keep me on track for the week. This week all my dinners are written in green. Anything I'm doing for meal planning or extras I write in a different color at the top of the day or along the side. This week I'm experimenting with celery soup because we have a TON of celery coming off our Tower Garden. It's already smelling delicious! Maybe I'll have a new recipe for you later this week. I know a few friends have asked me how I substitute for recipes that call for things like canned cream of celery soup. Maybe I'm onto something with my vegan version!
Here's a breakdown of our week, day by day.
